The Benefits of Six Month Smiles
- Posted on: Dec 30 2018
Misaligned smiles can make patients feel self-conscious about how they look to others. It can have an impact on the way the bite aligns, also causing reason for concern concerning the damage this misalignment can cause to the natural teeth. Wear and tear from poor bite alignment can be noticed when patients visit their dentist for an evaluation. Dr. Thomas J. DeStefano of the Pittsford, NY area encourages patients to learn about their options for realignment.
Do I need braces?
In most cases, orthodontic treatment is the way to go for realigning the teeth in the dental arch and improving bite alignment. However, not everyone needs the traditional method of orthodontics. Traditional metal bracket and wire braces can be reserved for patients with severe misalignment, while patients with mild to moderate changes can ask about services such as Six Month Smiles.
What is Six Month Smiles?
Six Month Smiles is a special type of bracket and wire orthodontia that uses clear appliances to achieve results faster. This particular orthodontic treatment is best suited for patients who have mild to moderate misalignment of the teeth near the front of the mouth, known sometimes as the “social six.” These are the teeth that are visible when patients smile, laugh, and speak with others, and are the most visible teeth in the mouth. The brackets and wires are used to reposition the teeth correctly and ensure that the smile looks its absolute best! And what’s exciting is that patients can achieve these results faster and with a more discreet service than conventional braces offered through an orthodontist. Patients can work with a dentist they already know and trust to achieve the smile of their dreams with Six Month Smiles!
